I'm a newbie and have only a few more days to nail a render. In order to do this, I need to figure out how to render my floor with realistic wood panelling. The floor is a pattern made from individual tiles at the moment and currently just renders as Cherry Wood. To make the pattern stand out, I need to apply realistic woodgrain and varying colour tones. Please help!!

Thanks

You can change the material to that floor like you want, just go Render Appearence and change the texture and the colour tone  like you want.

Thanks for that - only thing is, I've done several renders using this method but the floor 'tiles' all render with a sort of fake texture. If I dowload an image of realistic woodgrain, is there a way I can use that instead? The problem is, the floor is made up of a series of pieces of wood which all radiate out from the centre of the room in a star shape. In order for this pattern to really come to life, I need to utilise a real texture I think instead of the ones that are already loaded into Revit. If you have any ideas re: this Id love to hear them! Thanks heaps for your help so far!!

"If I dowload an image of realistic woodgrain, is there a way I can use that instead?" - YES

Go to materials, select a "Default" then duplicate, in render appearence you can change/apply a new image (jpeg) to the texture you want, then you can adjust the scale, rotation and so on...

Typhoon is right... you can also, add an "bump" map/image. that should give you what you want. Just play around with the settings and do some draft renderings.

Thanks heaps you guys- I've played around with the woodgrains offered in Revit and attached an image to show where I am at. The difficulty is, (see floor plan), there is a star like pattern on the floor that I want to bring to life, and my renders still don't show definition in the pattern.

I somehow need to darken or define the 'grouting' or space between wooden planks......any ideas of howto do this? I feel like I'm drowning in the deep end here! Thanks so much so far..

Your images are too small, i can't see the problem but to define the 'grouting' or space between wooden planks you can create a sweep or a reveal in that floor, that sweep can have a dark color so when you render you will see the effect you want.
